This is a chest that I made for my oldest son when we found out he was coming into the world. I did not build the crib or any of that stuff for reasons of safety. I did, however, build this chest for storage.
The entire chest is made out of soft maple The frames and top (the ligther colors) are simply a wipe-on polyurethane finish. The panels are finished with amber shellac. I love some contrasting colors in my pieces.
The drawer slide on the dust frames under each drawer. They also get hung up on the frame and panel sides somehow. I have not been able to figure that one out yet. This is going to cause me to so an overhaul of the drawers. I am going to rebuild the boxes, reattach the faces, and put them on Blum Tandem slide. This will make the wife happier.
Hope you all enjoy,
